  1. 1. Evolutionary genomics in Corvids – From single nucleotides to structural variants

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Matthias H. Weissensteiner; Jochen B.W. Wolf; Manfred Grabherr; Kateryna M. Makova; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; evolutionary genetics; genomics; population genetics; selection; recombination; chromosomal features; colouration; insertion; deletion; inversion; crow; tandem repeat; transposable element; gene expression;

    Abstract : Heritable genetic variation is the raw material of evolution and can occur in many different forms, from altering single nucleotides to rearranging stretches of millions at once. DNA mutations that result in phenotypic differences are the basis upon which natural selection can act, leading to a shift of the frequency of those mutations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolutionary innovation : Early industrial uses of genetic engineering

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Maureen McKelvey; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1994]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Biotechnology industry; Economics of innovation; Evolutionary Economics; Genentech; human growth hormone; Kabi; technological innovation; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : Based on an analysis of biological and economic theories of evol~tion, this dissertation first specifies evolutionary innovation and then uses it toanalyze early industrial uses of genetic engineering. Innovation refers totechnological innovation processes, i.e. series of innovative activitiesresulting in technical change. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evolutionary Approaches to Sequence Alignment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marcin Bogusz; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molecular evolution; multiple sequence alignment; pair hidden Markov models; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Molecular evolutionary biology allows us to look into the past by analyzing sequences of amino acids or nucleotides. These analyses can be very complex, often involving advanced statistical models of sequence evolution to construct phylogenetic trees, study the patterns of natural selection and perform a number of other evolutionary studies.

  4. 4. Immunogenetic variation along the latitudinal gradient in Scandinavian anuran species Evolutionary processes, demography and infection

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Cortazar-Chinarro; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biologi; Biology; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : The evolutionary and demographic processes affecting how genetic variation is partitioned and distributed over large geographical scales is of fundamental importance for our understanding of how organisms may adapt to their environments. Northern peripheral populations generally have lower genetic variation and individuals in these populations may therefore face difficulties adapting to their local environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Population-level consequences of variation

    University dissertation from Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Lena Wennersten; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; colour polymorphism; diversity; establishment success; evolutionary changes; population-level consequences; predation risk; Tetrix subulata; variation; Evolutionary Biology; Evolutionsbiologi;

    Abstract : Consequences of within population variation have recently attracted an increased interest in evolutionary ecology research. Theoretical models suggest important population-level consequences, but many of these predictions still remain to be tested. READ MORE
